The Providence Group
The Providence Group, a cybersecurity enterprise risk management consultancy based in Washington DC, provides strategic cybersecurity advice to transatlantic organizations. We believe cyber risk is actually different from all other risks because it touches on all types of risk, including operational risk, reputational risk, and regulatory risk. It is because cyber is such a complex and multifaceted risk that it needs to be addressed through an enterprise risk management approach. Moreover, cyber risk is extremely dynamic and, as a result, requires boards and senior executives to frame the risk appropriately. Evidence-based scenario thinking can help frame the risk and can also help understand steps that might be taken to mitigate and respond to those risks.
